NASHVILLE (Ray Stevens) Ray Stevens - 1973 I've climbed up the Eiffel Tower Floated down the River Nile Seen the bullfights in Madrid And watched those senoritas smile Been a tourist with my camera At the ruins of old Rome But the pictures in my mind Are all of home I've seen the Opera House in Sydney And the temples of Bombay Watched the seagulls skim the whitecaps Over San Francisco Bay Seen the palm trees of Tahiti And the sands of Waikiki But there's just one place I'm wishin' I could be My heart keeps goin' back to Nashville That's the only home for me My love is waitin' there in Nashville Nashville, Tennessee They're makin' music down in Nashville Just the way it oughta be I gotta get that jet back home to Nashville Nashville, Tennessee I've seen the Tower of London The dikes of Amsterdam The Taj Mahal, the Berlin Wall But through it all no matter where I am My heart keeps goin' home to Nashville Oh, that's the only place for me My love is waitin' there in Nashville Nashville, Tennessee Johnny Cash is at the Ryman Boots is at the Carousel God is smilin' down from Heaven Old Mayor Briley's doin' well They're makin' music down in Nashville Chet's a-pickin' one for me I gotta get that jet back home to Nashville Nashville, Tennessee Nashville, Tennessee Nashville, Tennessee Take it, Floyd!
